Williamsburg house description

View beautiful Elk Lake through the woods from your charming log house with stone fireplace. Follow a lovely path to a spectacular setting on the lake. We have eight acres and 650 feet of frontage with a nice lawn and beach area where you can enjoy swimming, boating, playing volleyball, or just relaxing at the beach. The 80 foot dock is perfect for sunning, picnicking, or watching the kids swim at the sand bar. In the evening the reflected sunsets, stars, and sometimes fireworks or northern lights can be enjoyed from either the shore next to the fire or out on the dock. The comfortable little house is freshly stained and painted, extremely clean, and very convenient with a newly remodeled and well equipped kitchen. Your vacation should be extremely enjoyable.

We are two miles from a public boat launch and Elk Lake is part of the Antrim County chain of lakes, consisting of Elk, Skegemog, Torch, and Clam lakes flowing into Grand Traverse Bay. The chain offers 45 miles of inland boating through the lakes and four rivers.

Turtle Creek casino is six miles away, the Horse Show by the Bay is 6 miles away, and Traverse City is 14 miles away with all the amenities of a tourist oriented city.

                          Additional information about rental rates

                          Fees:

                          • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
                          • Taxes Not included

                          Notes:

                          The $500 deposit holds the reservation. On arrival we collect the weeks rent and the deposit becomes a damage/cleaning deposit. This deposit returned via check after we have cleaned and checked for damage -- If there is no damage and a reasonable attempt was made to leave the house clean (we spend 3 - 4 hours cleaning if for the next guest), we will return the entire deposit.

                          Location

                          The Turtle Creek Casino is 5 miles away. The Horse Show by the Bay is 6 miles away. Traverse City is only 14 miles away with all the opportunites for entertainment of a tourist oriented city.

                          The 80 foot dock and moorings make boating convenient and enjoyable -- Elk Lake is a large, deep, clear lake that offers 45 miles of boating on the Chain of Lakes. A large fire pit at beach with plent of firewood makes evenings a joy. Of course there are picnic tables, lawn chairs, and chaise lounges at the waterfront, as well as at the house. Badminton and volley ball can be played on any of three lawn areas. We have a canoe and rowboat available.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1964

                          About the owner: We are a retired school teacher and semi retired auto executive and consultant. We have three adult children that were raised in this house, and 8 grand children. Our primary recreation is boating on this chain of lakes and the great lakes.

                          Why the Owner Chose Williamsburg:
                          We had family history in the area (my grand father settled on the next lake on the chain when he came to America in 1860) and it is a beautiful area to live and play in.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          You have the opportunity to share a former resort with the owner couple. You have privacy and many recreation activities available on the property, as well as many shopping and sightseeing opportunities in the near area. There is an indian casino five miles away, a nice tourist city (Traverse City) 14 miles away, several ski areas within a 60 mile radius, local festivals, a nationally acclaimed horse show, and the lakes and trees of northern Michigan.
